Supporting people with learning disabilities in Hampshire and Dorset

SHF CharitySilentAuction Websitei



The Stable Family Home Trust provides a full range of services to support adults with learning disabilities in Hampshire and Dorset to lead fulfilled and active lives, focusing on increased independence. The learning disabilities of our clients are many and we provide support to 129 clients, 54 of whom reside in our nine supported living homes which are located in Southbourne and Christchurch and one residential home in Ringwood.



The financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been significant for us as a charity. Since the temporary closure of our Aspire Day Services, additional staffing costs and loss of vital fundraising streams it has been a struggle, and our amazing staff and fundraising team who keep the charity going have been working incredibly hard to replace all our lost income. With the vaccine rollout well underway, the future looks brighter but we still need your help raising funds.
